The Kentucky State University community is deeply saddened by the loss of one of our students. Wali Clanton had been an involved and active student on campus, where he showed interest in and walked on last fall as a freshman member of KSU’s football team. A potential nursing student, Wali often assisted with the university’s Student Health Center activities and was always ready with a big smile.

We were certainly upset upon hearing the news of this young man’s tragic death in Georgia. He will remain in our thoughts as the campus community comes together in light of this tragedy. We offer our deepest sympathy and support to Wali Clanton’s family and friends.
